Taylor Swift’s ‘Tortured Poets’ First Album in Spotify’s History With 300M Streams in Single Day

Taylor Swift‘s The Tortured Poets Department continues to break records on Spotify.

On Friday (April 19), the pop superstar’s latest release became the first album in the streaming service’s history to have more than 300 million streams in a single day.

As previously reported, in less than 12 hours after its release, The Tortured Poets Department become Spotify’s most streamed album in a single day in 2024 so far. The 31-track double album snagged the honor from the previous record-holder, Beyoncé’s Billboard 200-topping Cowboy Carter, which ultimately earned 300.41 million on-demand official streams in its first full week of release.

But that’s not all. The Tortured Poets Department broke yet another Spotify record on Friday as the album’s first single, “Fortnight” (featuring Post Malone), became the streaming service’s most streamed song in a single day. The track was co-written by Swift, Malone and Jack Antonoff, and co-produced by Swift and Antonoff.

Swift announced “Fortnight” as the first single early Thursday. “The first single from The Tortured Poets Department is…………. Fortnight featuring @postmalone,” Swift wrote on X. “I’ve been such a huge fan of Post because of the writer he is, his musical experimentation and those melodies he creates that just stick in your head forever. I got to witness that magic come to life firsthand when we worked together on Fortnight.”

Trending on Billboard

The Tortured Poets Department is Swift’s eleventh studio album and her her first release of new music since 2022’s Grammy-winning Midnights. The new LP features collaborations with Florence + the Machine and Malone, as well as writing and production contributions from Antonoff and Aaron Dessner.

Although The Tortured Poets Department is Swift’s first album of new music since Midnights, she has steadily pumped out her re-recorded Taylor’s Version albums in the interim. In between the two aforementioned albums, Swift topped the Billboard 200 with both Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) and 1989 (Taylor’s Version), the latter of which became the star’s record-extending sixth album to debut with over one million pure sales in its first week.
